, that hagel could be used as a foil? a republican to go in and cut the defense budget? not someone that's not going to disagree with the president, because we know hagel has sharp elbows, but somebody that can be used as a foil for the cuts? >> i think that the president chose him as his defense secretary because they're in agreement on the big issues that are going to be facing the pentagon. and that includes withdrawing almost all u.s. combat troops from afghanistan by the end of 2014, and some savings in the pentagon. so, i mean, it can't be a surprise that he would choose someone for the -- for his top, you know, for these top cabinet jobs, that are going to be on the side of what he wants to do. the fact that senator hagel is a republican, it helps the fact that he's a former senator. it helps, and, you know, the fact that he is a combat veteran himself, from vietnam, i think also gives him credibility in dealing with these issues. it's going to be contentious. we know that when these sequestration budget cuts come up in just a couple weeks on march 1st, that we would expect t
